This is the first Vantage Roadster to use Aston Martin's 5.2-liter, twin-turbocharged V12.

Just like the coupe, the engine in the Roadster produces a meaty 690 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque, which is sent exclusively to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission and a mechanical limited-slip differential.

It'll reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds -- just a tenth off the coupe -- and will keep pushing until it reaches its top speed of 200 mph.

As with the coupe, the V12 Vantage Roadster looks the absolute business.

Standard carbon-ceramic brakes save 51 pounds of unsprung mass versus steel brakes.

The stainless-steel exhaust system weighs nearly 16 pounds less than the standard Vantage Roadster's pipes.
